Building on our outstanding success from 2016 & 2017, Bark ‘n Yapp is hosting its 3rd Annual Howloween Pup Parade & Costume Contest.

Join 100’s of dogs and their owners as we parade along Fort York Blvd between Spadina Ave and Bathurst St, with multiple stops along the way for both pup and human treats. This will be the largest event of its kind in Toronto. Even if you don’t have a dog, come out and cheer for your favourites.


This is a FREE family-friendly and community-friendly party and charity event in support of members of the Bark ‘n Yapp Smartstart Shelter & Rescue Program


The event will take place from 1:00 – 3:00, Sunday, October 28. Registration will take place starting at 12:00 in front of The Fox and Fiddle restaurant at 17 Fort York Blvd. The parade will begin from there and head west toward Bathurst Street and then back to Canoe Landing Park for judging and prizes. The parade will stop at a few locations along the way for pup and hooman treat. The day will wrap up with a pawty on the patio back at The Fox and Fiddle.

Plan to join us for afternoon full of fun and surprises. It’s a great opportunity to dress up your dog (and yourself) chance for some fame and rewards.

Last year was so much fun and we featured on CTV Evening News in Toronto.


We are also offering something special this year. We are expecting a big turnout, but will only have limited space. We are opening up a pre-registration this year and to sweeten the pot of you and your pup, we will be holding a special raffle limited to the first 100 dogs registered.

So, what are you waiting for!
